Opportunities In Translational Genomics


Department of Translational Genomics @ USC

The  Department of Translational Genomics and newly created Institute of Translational Genomics at The University of Southern California (USC)  welcome the next generation of new clinically driven scientists who share our drive for bringing novel technologies and molecular insights to help improve patient outcome. The Department of Translational Genomics and Institute of Translational Genomics at Keck Medicine of USC is focused on translating the molecular study of genes into individual treatment plans.USC founded in 1880, is the largest private employer in the City of Los Angeles. As an employee of USC, you will be a part of a world-class research university and a member of the “Trojan Family,” which is comprised of the faculty, students and staff that make the university what it is.

Post-doctoral Scholar Fellowship Announcement

TRANSLATIONAL GENOMICS, BIOINFORMATICS, AND STATISTICAL GENETICS

 

Overview

The Craig laboratory is seeking applicants with a strong background in molecular biology, statistics/biostatistics, bioinformatics, genetics, computer science or related fields, and with a demonstrated interest in translating biomedical discoveries to the clinic. Opportunities are available for both laboratory and computational tracks, with a strong preference towards individuals with a strong foundation in the wet and dry laboratories. Successful applicants will be expected to collaborate in a multidisciplinary environment under the mentorship and collaboration with multiple faculty members across the department and institute. Fellows will have the opportunity to interact and train with faculty experts that uniquely combine germline genetics, cancer biology, and other heritable disease, to impact precision medicine in both pediatric and adult conditions. Fellows will interact with both industry and academia as they build the necessary skills and network to launch their career in translational genomics.


A major focus of this fellowship will be on developing the bioinformatics tools to bring precision or personalized medicine into clinical practice, building in integrative and single cell genomics in order to provide unparalleled insight into the molecular biology of a disease (e.g. transcriptome sequencing, methylation and other analyses along with whole genome sequencing) Long-term goals will be to incorporate data from clinical trials and treatment decisions, and pharmaceutical companies in order to realize the potential for improving the treatment of human disease.


Applicants must have completed a Ph.D. in a relevant field (statistics/biostatistics, molecular biology, genetic epidemiology, computer science, molecular or computational biology, etc.). Interested candidates should submit CV with prior academic record, and reprints of any relevant publications. Address applications to Dr. David W. Craig (davidwcr@usc.edu).
